Most Popular Wedding Venues and Locations in Tucson

Updated: Apr 26, 2020

Tucson's many resorts are a wonderful choice for your wedding as they offer a complete package of the ceremony venue (outside or inside) as well as the reception site, food, and beverage. You will also receive excellent personal attention to details, and all or some will be overseen by their wedding coordinator. It is always important to make sure of the exact specifics that the wedding coordinator will help with on the day of your wedding. In some cases you may still need to hire a wedding planner for the day of and other particulars. They usually will offer a recommended vendor list to help begin choosing your perfect officiant/minister, photographer, florist, and music, etc. Often, the hotel/resort will offer a block of rooms at a discounted rate depending on the size of your guest list. Have a list of all your questions and inquiries as you go from place to place. With pricing, make sure you know if taxes and gratuities will be added.

Ask, ask, ask and ask some more! Clarity of what may be in your wedding package is very important, and I must say most resorts in the Tucson area do a very good job of this. Don't be timid to ask "out of the box" questions about how creative you can get with your wedding event. Many wedding coordinators really have fun with creativity and how to use their spaces for your wedding.

As well as resorts, there are so many other wonderful unique locations and venues for your special wedding day celebration. And if it is just the two of you and your two witnesses, there are beautiful spots right off trails of state and national parks or right in a local city park.

HERE IS THE LIST: Enjoy finding your perfect wedding venue location in Tucson!
